Paul C. Clerici: The course of the Falmouth Road Race has remained relatively unchanged since its inception in 1973, save for a few adjustments at the start and the finish. It was Tommy Leonard who decided the course would take runners from the Captain Kidd in Woods Hole to where he bartended at the Brothers 4 in Falmouth Heights, a pub-to-pub run not uncommon in Boston where he also tended bar at the Eliot Lounge. While unheard of now, in the early years there were several suggestions (primarily by non-fans of the race) to move the course. Some of the ideas included having it finish at Guv Fuller Field, and one even provided detailed plans for it to start and finish in Falmouth Center!
Gov. Fuller Field is the ballfield behind the Falmouth Recreation Building on Main Street.
